Hi good people of the pomz in oz forums can i firstly say hapy new year to you all.
Now i was wondering if anyone out there can help me regarding the 175 visa. I will be a qualified lift engineer (mechanic) in march or april and am wanting to apply for a skilled 175 visa. Firstly is there an easy website to follow with lemans terms as i find the government literature as clear as mud. Basically do i need to give copies of my birth certificate, qualification certificate, passport and do i need to have a job lined up first and do i need to show i have ex amount of dollars. I am 28 and my girlfriend is 30 who will also be applying for a visa 175 , she is a newly qualified teacher and we both want to try and do the application our selves as we feel paying a company to fill in a few forms is lazy on our behalf. Please can anybody set us on our way in the applying for a 175 visa and tell us a bit about the process.
Thanks alot guys and girls
